Ready to Be Roughed Up?

Ready to Be Roughed Up?

If David De Gea has had trouble coping with the physical nature of the English game then the fixture, this afternoon, could prove to be a real test.

Stoke City`s approach to things is slightly on the aggressive side and De Gea has, this week, been training with the squad, a squad who have been told to rough him up a bit when crosses come in.

At his pre-match press conference, the physical approach was something Sir Alex Ferguson touché don, remarking,

"Playing at Stoke is an eye-opener for any keeper."

"I remember with Edwin van der Sar we used to discuss what his position would be in terms of the long throw-ins and where he was the most comfortable to deal with the situation and I think we got it right."

"We`ll do the same tomorrow ((Saturday). All the work this week has been on his positioning, where he should be, similar to what Edwin did."

"I`ve never criticised Stoke`s style and I`ve never had a problem with them. They have played to their strengths and there`s nothing wrong with that."

"We know you have to perform there. Last season we scored with about four minutes to go, but we`ve never won easily there, have we?"


Time for a comfortable win then!

He looked as if he controlled the goalmouth - a much more commanding performance
